Words cannot begin to describe the extraordinary Alexis Beck. I would go as far as to say that Alexis has had one of the most (if not the most) profoundly amazing impacts on my life. She is hard-working, fiercely loyal, loving, intelligent with a compassionately unique approach to therapy and nutrition. When I first met Alexis, I was headed down a pretty dark, potentially dangerous path. But in a mere two months, Alexis turned my entire life around. She saved me. Working with Alexis has been an incredible gift and pleasure. She is a force of happiness, health, and good in my life. Her innate ability to understand people and approach to therapy is unlike anyone else. I whole-heartedly recommend Alexis. She is amazing.
I love it. Thanks again
Alexis is excellent. I made an appointment after having gained 40lbs after my mothers death. Kumerspeck (a german word for wight gained from grieving which translates as exactly as grief bacon) is more complicated than just watching calories and I Alexis was full of strategies and ideas based on me better understanding my self, what I was eating and and why. I have been seeing her weekly since my first appointment and after a few complications my insurance has been sorted out and is covering it 100%. I have lost 15 lbs over 6 months, which is real and permanent weight loss. What is best about seeing Alexis is that each time my weigh plateaus she has new strategies and encouraging words to keep me going. I'm not dieting, I'm learning about myself and just happen to be losing weight.
Alexis Beck somehow combines scientific expertise, psychological training and empathy all in one session! I came to my appointment worried, pessimistic & frustrated -- I've been struggling with Bulimia & being very Overweight all at the same time... She gets it. I have a treatment plan that makes sense for the first time--it's a plan just for me-- not the same plan given to 50 other patients... I feel understood...ahhh thank goodness ... Finally. I hope to come to my appointments every week -- and slowly but surely make peace with my food my eating my body.... Thank you so much.
Alexis is phenomenal! She is a highly intelligent and intuitive clinician whose therapeutic techniques are leaps and bounds ahead of her peers.
